Introduction to Yarmouth and Thorley voices

Yarmouth PostcardYarmouth and Thorley Voices is a record of memories of earlier years; some are happy, some funny and some tragic.

Many things have changed over the years, but the unity and strength of the community remains as steadfast as ever.

This is a social history of Yarmouth and Thorley on the Isle of Wight; a flavour of how people lived their lives in good and not so good times; stories which tell of extraordinary efforts in meeting the challenges of the times.

Using the site
We’ve tried to make the site as easy as possible to use. To find out about people or places you know, we suggest using the search box near the top of the screen to find out about them.

The other option is to use the Menus which gives a ‘guided tour’ through the many memories held on the Website.

Come and get involved too
We know that we’ve just scratched the surface as far as memories of Yarmouth and Thorley are concerned and we’d love to help you get your personal remembrances on the Site too, whether they be memories or photos.

If you’d like to become part of the team, enhancing this valuable resource, we’d also love to hear from you.

Please just get in touch.
